Sadamichi Hirasawa was born in Tokyo in 1892. At a young age, he was already determined to become a painter and joined the art club as a result. By twenty-two, his career took off with one of his paintings winning a prize at a national exhibition. The imperial art committee exhibited his different works sixteen consecutive times afterwards.
